传奇sf在PAX East举办的专题讨论会上，《尼尔：机械纪元》的总监横尾太郎，制作人齐藤阳介和作曲家冈部启一回答了观众的提问。Legendary SF at the PAX East symposium, Yokoo Taro, director of the Neal: mechanical era, producer Saito Yousuke and composer Okabe Keiichi answered questions from the audience.
横尾太郎表示，《尼尔》系列有50%的机会继续下去，这一比例主要是因为他想再次与开发团队合作，剩下的则取决于他自己是否想要再创作一部续作。Yokoo Taro says the Neal series has 50% opportunities to continue, mainly because he wants to work with the development team again, and the rest depends on whether he wants to create a sequel again.
他表示自己实际上不喜欢创作续作，认为《机械纪元》本身就是完整的。他调侃道，由于主角是机械生化人，所以也许他可以将它们变成虫子之类的形象，再做一款格斗游戏。He said he actually does not love the creation of "mechanical" sequel, that era is complete in itself. He quipped that, because the protagonist is a mechanized biochemical person, maybe he can turn them into insects and so on, and then do a fighting game.
当被问及是否想制作一款游戏来讲述机器如何获得人性时，他说，如果是一个纵向射击有戏的话，他会。而齐藤回答说，如果可行的话就会众筹，横尾太郎觉得Square Enix不会给他任何这样的游戏预算。When asked whether he wanted to make a game to tell how the machine to get human nature, he said, if a vertical shooting is in play, he will. And Saito replied, if feasible, they will raise money. Yokoo Taro doesn't think Square Enix will give him any budget for such games.
最后，横尾太郎说在未来可能会“在《尼尔》世界打开另一扇门”。他不知道需要多长时间，但《机械纪元》得到了很好的反馈并得到了很多支持。发布后，游戏一直得到粉丝的支持。由于他认为游戏很怪异而小众，所有热爱它的人都算是个怪人，所以他非常感谢世界上所有的怪人。Finally, Yokoo Taro said that in the future, he might "open another door in the world of Neal". He didn't know how long it would take, but the machine age got good feedback and got a lot of support. After the release, the game has been supported by fans. Because he thought the game was weird and small, all the people who loved it were eccentric. So he was very grateful to all the weird people in the world.
